When Obama Took Office

Gas was about $1.95/gallon, at least that was the average in Wisconsin on the day Obama took office. Now, we are looking $2.70/gallon and in the last few weeks the prices has been on the rise about a dime to two dimes per week.

Why, bring this up? Due to a bumper sticker I saw stating: When Bush took office gas was $1.48. I wonder if dude is going to replace that sticker with a similar one with Obama. At least President Bush advocated realist policies promoting energy independence whereas the current President is pursuing the energy fairy. In fact, it seems many of President Obama's supporters are hoping and pining for the days of hyper-expensive gasoline.
